    Who would be the most likely to get a tattoo?

    Lauren. She actually already has one. Of the characters who don’t have tattoos, maybe Judah or Jordan.

    Who would break a vase on accident?

    Probably Kaz.

    Who would prefer a dark, rainy, bleh day over a nice sunny one? 

    Travis. It would match his dark, rainy personality.

    New Question: who would be…[Read more]

  • Kaz. He’s protective to a fault.

    Who would be most likely to dance in public?

  • Who would be most likely to stay up til midnight because they can’t put a book down?

    Probably Travis or Jordan.

    Who would be most likely to start something but never finish it?

    I’m thinking Lauren.

    Who would be most likely to dress in a costume when it’s not Halloween or a dress-up party or anything?

     

  • Who would convince someone that a fake fact is true?

    Dante. Definitely.

    Who’s most likely to talk in their sleep?

    Maybe Judah. His mind doesn’t shut off and I imagine most of his sleep is filled with dreams (mostly nightmares).

    Who would be most likely to ruin a surprise, accidentally or on purpose?

    I’m thinking Lauren. She gets distracted…[Read more]

    Who’s most likely to know how to pick a lock?

    Lauren. Definitely. She’s pretty much as escape artist.

    Who would be most likely to always be late?

    Hmm…possibly Judah. I can see him getting waylaid by investigating something that he’s curious about, so, yeah.

    Who’s most likely to become the leader of the place where they live?

  • Who would be most likely to listen to a single song on repeat?

    Judah. He loves music. He’s had a record player since he was, like, ten. Also, he can get kind of obsessive about things so I could definitely see him listening to the same song over and over again.

    Who would devote their free time to volunteering?

    Hmm…maybe Frankie. Or Lauren. I…[Read more]

  • Would you rather live your greatest dream, but be disliked by almost everybody, or give up on your dream and be super popular?

    Judah: I’d rather live the dream.

    Kaz: *mumbling* I knew you would say that. *rubs his forehead as he thinks* I don’t know…I guess, I’d rather live my dream too.

    Dante: I’d rather be a dream-liver too.

    Frankie:…[Read more]

    @kimlikesart

    Your poem felt powerful. Also, tragic, important, and well-written. I especially found the repetition of the word silent to be strong and impactful.

    @kylie-wingfeather

    I like your poem. 🙂 I’ve heard of the Wingfeather Saga, but haven’t read the books yet. Your poem makes me want to read them even more!

  • Great question!

    Judah was the first character I thought of…but I feel like most of my hero type characters would do that: Jordan, Lauren, Frankie, Kaz, etc.

    Who would be most likely to eat dessert for dinner?

  • Maybe Dylan, because he’s an artist. Or Blaze, who’s got that carefree, randomness factor. At least, he can come off that way, even though on the inside he’s got all this pain and love and heroism and that tragic backstory…

    Who’s most likely to suffer from insomnia on a regular basis?

    Maybe Nicki or Judah.

  • I think I’d have to go with Lauren again. 🙂 She’s very creative.

    Who’s the most likely to know how to sew stitches?

    Jordan. She has a lot of medical skills.

     

  • Sam M replied to the topic Character most likely to… in the forum Characters 3 months ago

    Definitely Lauren! She dyed her hair purple, although I don’t think she’d be opposed to trying out different colors too (e.g. blue, pink).

    Who’s most likely to injure themselves doing something unnecessarily dangerous?

    I think out of my main characters, it would probably be Judah or Dante. Although, Frankie is another possibility.

  • Sam M replied to the topic Grief in the forum Poets 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    @kimlikesart

    Great job on your poem, Kimmi! There was a lot of strong emotion in it. It felt very raw and real and true. Keep up the good work.

  • Sam M replied to the topic You Are in the forum Poets 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    @kimlikesart

    Hi, Kimmi!  I really like your poem. 🙂 Some of my favorite lines were: “Do you not know, you rival the stars? Do you not know, who you are?”

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Would you rather be a sleepwalker or never be able to sleep?

    Judah: I’d rather be a sleepwalker. I’m already a borderline insomniac and I’d rather it not get worse. Besides, the trouble I’d get into could hardly be worse than the stuff I get into when I’m awake.

    Lauren: Sleepwalker. That could be interesting.

    Kaz: Ugh. I’d hate to be a…[Read more]

  • Sam M replied to the topic Favorite Fantasy Book in the forum Fantasy Writers 4 months ago

    I love The Keeper of the Lost Cities series. (The suggest reader age range is 8-12, but I’m twenty-years-old and am dying to read the newest one). 🙂 My favorite character is undeniably the unforgettable Keefe Sencen. He’s also the reason I love the series.

    I also love the Harry Potter series.

    Romanov and Fawkes, both by Nadine Brandes, were…[Read more]

  • @zee Thanks for posting this thread! I really like this. Here’s mine:

    How should you treat an enemy?

    What does it mean to love an enemy?

    What is the difference between justice and revenge?

    What is forgiveness?

    How can a person forgive someone else?

    How can a person forgive themselves and/or accept forgiveness from someone else?

    @beth20

    Hi, Beth. You did a great job of writing an emotional piece in masterfully concise way. I like you’re writing style and thought it was cool how you ended the poem with a thought-provoking question. Great job!

    @jennythefaun

    Yeah, I can see now how that would be confusing. Thanks for the feedback! 🙂
